Vintage Wedding

Hubby's side of the family has 2 weddings within a month of each other.  It's kind of funny because the family hasn't seen a wedding since 2007 and it was my husband and I!  Now there are 2!!  So I made these cards very similar because they won't be attending each other's weddings since both are out of country.  Took a little work out of it but they still took awhile to create!!  So I made up 3 sets, which I will be sharing with you over the next short while.

A little while ago a friend of a friend mentioned that a local lady had cleaned out her crafting room and had a bagful of lace for sale.  I HIT THE MOTHERLOAD!!  LOL!  One of the pieces was the gorgeous pearl beaded lace I used on this card.  Seemed very appropriate given the 20s vintage image on here.  Maybe 30s?  The ruffled lace was from Live and Love Crafts.  I LOVE this stuff!  

I've used papers called "Coral Chic" from Michele R Designs for both cards but of course you can't seem them after my embellishment drawer threw up on them.  HA HA HA HA!  If you haven't seen her online store you must check it out.  She has both digi and paper sets and all are GORGEOUS.  I keep using that word but it's so true and describes her papers perfectly!

Another pretty bouquet of flowers using Wild Orchid Craft flowers and those pretty LLC chrysanthemums.  I added a bow tied hemp string and intertwined a strand of pearls.

Again pieces from LLC - the bark heart and LOVE paperclip.

And here's the second card and really only laces are different and a few odds and ends.

I also like using these clay hearts from LLC.  You can even add Stampendous Frantage embossing powder on them.  

I added some a shabby ribbon bow behind the roses too on this one.

Again this pretty shabby pink/peach colored ribbon and yummy lace again both from LLC.

So there you have it!   My first set of cards for the new wedding couples.  I'll be back with more!  
Thanks for visiting!
